Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig looked to the sky for inspiration of their latest covetous collection of Marchesa red carpet worthy gowns.
The runway started out with a series of gowns evoking images of a dreamy sky blue pink sunrise. These were stunning works of incredible artistry when you look at them up close – sheer blue and pink, but like a subtle iridescent ombre over lace, all delicately embracing the body, creating a siren-like effect along with an iridescent finish. Magical. These are definitely going to be seen on a few celebrities.
From there, the sky motif rotated into day, toying with shades of blue in varying silhouettes with florals, lace, another metallic foil effect I was raving about in another collection from this season, and a few deep purples and greens before it settled into the golden hour.
There was a Grecian goddess gold lame one-shoulder that had just a little cutout of skin at the torso. I love this gown, because the effect of the textile looks like it’s almost a part of her skin. Gorgeous! Then came two gorgeous sheer black gowns with gold embroidery. Seriously, this collection just keeps coming with the pretty.
And then the slip dresses. Marchesa took the basic 90’s slip dress trend, looked at the other designers, and officially threw down the gauntlet. Just look at these fantastic (and flattering!) pieces of artistry.
I’ve decided that Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig are not real designers. They are actually the magical fairies of Sleeping Beauty, creating amazing yet seemingly impossible stunning creations. Adopt me, fairy godmothers!
